Raspberry Pi Zero Rust: qemu: uncaught target signal 11 (Segmentation fault)


#1

Hi,

I’m starting to work on Rust using a Raspberry Pi Zero. For simple applications not using external crates builds were running fine, but on including external crates cargo segfaults in qemu. I’ve verified that this runs on the host hardware fine, it only fails in the docker run.

push run:

Hey @tech2077 , I have also been struggling with this. I definitely seems related to compiling external crates in qemu. I hit the same error just building a rust docker container on Docker for MacOS which uses qemu under the covers to run armhf builds and containers. According to this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1357226 it might be memory related, so we will need to play around with trying to give qemu more memory. I’ll continue investigating and let you know what I find.

Are there possible workarounds at the moment other than local cross-compilation?


#9

Hey @tech2077,

If it’s an truly issue with qemu then there won’t be a work around, as the builder requires qemu to build any arm containers.

So the only work around currently is to locally build and push the container straight to our registry as you have suggested.


#10

Hey @tech2077 , we just added some native arm builders to our build system, so all the rust + qemu related problems should be a thing of the past. I would recommend pushing your project now and see that it works :slight_smile:
